I get some of the strangest urges sometimes. Puns I can't resist making, the occassional desire to do weird bad poetry for column titles, and heck! Once I won Secret of Evermore!

I woke up recently to the horrible realization that I do not own nearly enough games. Given the information that my console of choice is the PS1, and my current RPG library consists of FF7-9 and BoF3, which would you say are the titles whose non-presence in my TV cabinet is most lamentable? That, and what games should I get?

Eek. This is almost as imposing as the letter I got today asking for a complete list of (non-Action/) RPGs on the PSX. Anyway, just off the top of my head, there's the Lunars, Wild ARMs, Valkyrie Profile, Dragon Warrior 7... that should be enough to last you a few months right? Don't wanna go down the whole list in one sitting, because then people would jump down my throat for leaving stuff out... which they might do anyway.

Boing, boing, boing...

Hey Googleshng,

I've searched all over the internet and I cannot find the answer.Before I go on in Final Fantasy IX I want to know if I absolutely HAVE to beat the jump rope mini-game to get some rare cards (Tiger Racket card in particular). The Jump Rope game is tough, and it would be of help to know if I could skip it or not. I've heard you can get rare cards in Treno, but I don't kow if they'll have the same rare cards that you win in other mini-games.

Thanks a lot


Yes, you have to play the utterly annoying jumprope game if you want the tiger racket card, but before you drive yourself insane trying, ask yourself this. Do you REALLY want it? The only reason I can think of to try and get that card is if you're trying for an absolutely completist game, but if you're doing THAT, you shouldn't be spending any time on that stuff NOW, you should be rushing through the game for that sword you can only get if you reach the last dungeon in under 12 hours.

Not an RPG, but eh.

Warcraft III comes out July 3rd. Woot. I have a few questions about it.

1.) Are you gonna go buy it Thursday, or have you already pre-ordered?

Haven't had a chance to pre-order it unfortunately, so I have to wait slightly longer.

2.) Are you excited about it?

Last time Blizzard had an RTS release, I dropped off the face of the earth for a while.

3.) Would you recommend going out and buying it immidiatly, or waiting until it goes down in price a little bit?

Right away, although I'm going to wait until after I take down this stack of new games a bit.

4.) Do you think it'll run well on a 475 MHZ comp with 196 RAM, and a Geforce 2 MX440 chip?

I'm too busy worrying over whether my computer can run it to worry about how well yours can. Go check the specs.

5.) Will I ever find true love?



Probably not, but I'd assume it's overrated.


You don't need a machine to make a rainbow. Rainbows are made of happy thoughts, and dreams, and chocolate unicorns, and gumdrops, and licorice sunsets, and fuzzy gumdrop beds, and cheaply put in chocolate gumdrop land.

Yeah, or you could save yourself a lot of time, money, and effort and just use a prism.

Quick question, long winded.

Ah! If it isn't goog..then..well..anyway google:

It seems that in my rampant obsession with waiting for Xenosaga that I've tunnel-visioned myself into being clueless about any console RPGs that are worth looking at...

I know these question types are annoying but This is a legitimate problem for me. What recent RPGs are out there, availible, for PSX or PS2, that I should look at?

BTW: I need a new PSX memory card.. what chance do you think I have of getting one?

ALSO: I like
PLZ! Save me from Counter-strike!
1 4m l33t! AWP r0x0rs j00!
HEEEEELP! *collapses*

DEFUNCT webmaster.

Let's see... "recent" is one of those really subjective words. By my definition, you haven't missed anything, but if you consider Arc the Lad Collection recent, there's that. Oh, and I don't see why PSX memory cards would be hard to find at this point. It hasn't even been a full year since something came out on it.


what was your cats name, color, gender, etc.

I was planning to avoid everything along these lines, but since enough people seem to pay attention to brief mentionings of my cats to care: Trouble, black and white, male. Although that same description aside from the name covers all my cats at this point.

The Last Laugh:

Random little note: Over the weekend someone asked why I compare all games to Koudelka. The answer is quite simple really. I don't. I've recently been comparing Shadow Hearts to Koudelka, for the simple reason that Shadow Hearts is the SEQUEL to Koudelka.

Not the best way to get someone on your side that.
